It has been 14 years since the Martians invaded England. The world has moved on, always watching the skies but content that we know how to defeat the Martian menace. Machinery looted from the abandoned capsules and war-machines has led to technological leaps forward. The Martians are vulnerable to earth germs. The Army is prepared.
So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to one man, Walter Jenkins, the narrator of Wells' book. He is sure that the Martians have learned, adapted, understood their defeat.
He is right.
Thrust into the chaos of a new invasion, a journalist - sister-in-law to Walter Jenkins - must survive, escape and report on the war.
Kind of slow to get into, at least I think so but the more I read I wanted to see what happened next even if it didn't take me a while to get into the story. But even with it been slow ,I'm surprised at how much I want to keep reading , because I had trouble getting though War of the World's, come to think of it I DNF that book and never picked it back up,but this one makes me want to.give it a second chance.With that said I would like to think Blogging For Books for giving me a chance at reading The Massacre of Mankind.
